Hey Dear! What I saw today
In the Safdarjang hospital
Doctors so pride to patients
For their free treatments
Tax is levied on soap and oil
For everyone
For the complaint of dirty washroom
Nurses show prices of Apollo and say
Go to Apollo if
Washrooms are dirty
For taxes question
The Finance Ministry .
